We firmly believe we are only as good as our last safari.
If you are interested in speaking with someone who has recently returned from a Royal African safari, please contact Petrina.
Thank you for what was the best trip/experience of my life! I am having such a tough time trying to describe to friends and coworkers just how remarkable my holiday was. I feel truly lucky to have been part of a Royal African Safari and will never forget how special Kenya and everything we experienced was.
The entire family will be talking about this safari for YEARS to come! Thank you for all the memories and I hope to see you in the states in a couple of weeks.
Recently returned from another fabulous family safari with RAS. Thanks to Royal African, we stayed in amazing camp sites and at beautiful lodges, where the staff was top notch, the food was stupendous and the wine flowed. We saw spectacular wildlife, including leopard, white rhino and a wildebeest river crossing; of which we were able to get some pretty fantastic photographs. Needless to say, we had an absolute blast…thanks, RAS!

Too many “memorable” moments to mention. All fantastic - people, wildlife, staff, hosts, guides, ship - a perfect 10!
We ALL had without doubt the most wonderful perfect over the top luxury, comfortable, spoiling, attentive holiday all 16 of us have ever had. I could not change one single thing and believe me we all felt like that. It was thrilling and we have all made the most special wonderful friends.
Neil and I considered our safari the trip of a lifetime. We were so happy being with you, in camp and in those custom-built vehicles, talking and learning and seeing those beautiful animals, of whom we knew all too little. I am now sharing my new knowledge with family and friends. Now they know that white rhinos aren't white, black rhinos aren't black, but their mouths are different -- one's a grazer, one's a browser. They have been told about leopards in trees on branches the lions can't reach, of leopards courting in trees, of the perhaps two hundred thousand wildebeests we saw out of the perhaps 2 million we saw migrating, of the six young male elephant we saw with Andy "swimming," and of the excitement of hearing our spotter speaking rapid Swahili and catching the word "simba" -- high excitement on each and every game drive as well.

The whole trip was extraordinary!!! Couldn't have gone more smoothly...so much fun...so beautifully run. Am madly in love with all three guides and hosts ...plus their whole team. We asked a million questions...all of which got answered patiently by everybody at every turn. Plus everyone had fabulous sense of humor. Food was terrific everywhere.
And the accommodations -- sitting on a hill in the middle of seemingly nowhere -- was a completely extraordinary surprise. We were all dazzled by its design, comfort, elegance...and especially the managers who ran the place. As a writer for Arch Digest I've seen a lot of gorgeous digs in my day but that was at the top of the list.
Moreover, even the animals cooperated: lots of lions; leopards, wildebeest, baboon families, giraffes, you name it. Weather perfect.
It was quite simply one of the happiest ten days of my life. I never missed an outing...always riding on top of the van with the spotter...completely magical.
I cannot recommend Royal African enough -- and will do so to all my friends. Many, many thanks.
Back from safari now… missing Kenya a lot and wanting to head back as soon as possible. It was a wonderful experience again. The new tents are great, the food is better than ever and always so wonderful to see old friends in camp. It is always my favorite trip, no doubt about it… and my friends loved it!!!!
Thanks for making it happen.
The game viewing was terrific. A great gift was having protected 24/7 family time with our kids - can only happen on a trip like this. We loved the rhythm of the trip - was peaceful and relaxing.

The entire experience changed us all, woke us back up to the fun of living life and experiencing new places, people, things. Kenya was beautiful! Truly unforgettable.

We were in constant amazement of the of the kitchen and tent staff to prepare impeccable meals, laundry, tent amenities…..all from the campfire. You strike just the right balance of luxury camping, adventure and the authentic safari experience.

Being away from our “to do lists”, a beautiful part of the world with wonderful guides made this the best family holiday we have had! Many thanks to all.
It was simply breathtaking. We enjoyed every minute of the trip. Great memories, great photos, great experience.

I can't say enough positive things about my experience with Royal African, and the incredible safari they arranged for us. We felt so well cared for the entire time, and everything was perfectly planned- everything. The trip just flowed without our having to worry about a thing, and one experience was better than the next.
There were so many highlights including a romantic, private dinner in the moon light one night. The next morning we were taken on horseback through safari, only to be surprised by a fresh, amazing picnic breakfast during the ride. Then, our horses were taken during the breakfast so we could make the trip back on camels! At that height, we were practically eye to eye with the giraffes- incredible!!
The animals were everywhere. Our guides knew exactly where to take us. The food was spectacular- fresh, tasty, amazing. We got hooked on the local Tusker Beer- yum:)
I was originally going to book this trip through a larger travel agent, but after talking to RAS I realized that was a huge mistake. The team at Royal African ARE safari, and know exactly what to do at what time of year in each area, etc.
I would highly and enthusiastically recommend any safari planned by RAS. Just sit back, and let them do their thing! I'm already trying to figure out when I can do it again. THANK YOU.
